(Web Desk) – The Indo-Pak tensions have brought out to the open the ugly face of India. The Bollywood industry that once was opening up for Pakistani artists has now come under extreme pressure of radical nationalists to denounce the latter, amid the upcoming elections.
According to media reports, the Hindutva zealots have been assigned tasks to instigate hate speech against Pakistan, that too from the Muslim artists of the movie industry, in order to prove their loyalty.
A number of Muslim artists have reported receiving threatening calls from unknown numbers for a forceful statement inciting hate speech on social media against Pakistan.
The leaders of the zealots have also reportedly sent similar messages to the Khans of Bollywood, namely Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir and Salman Khan.
A few journalists have rung the alarm bell against the propagandist techniques being employed by BJP to secure an election win using the anti-Pakistan and anti-Muslim card.
The Indian government has also come under criticism from around the world but the hate fervor has not toned down. Instead he right wing politicians are using Indian media for spreading hatred through tv programs.
The artists of the industry are being bullied into the dirty politics for creating an anti-Pakistan hysteria or otherwise will be faced with the worst kind of boycott or harsh criticism from the fans.
